(clearing throat) Well, I’m not certain about having to worry about my own interest in Pearlshipping by this point in time. Anyone who remembers what I found toward the end of last year probably has a good idea of what I’ve been up to throughout this year, even as recently as this month. Perhaps remarkably for me, that new something gave me the idea to watch “Mounting a Coordinator Assault” again about an hour before this post, and I couldn’t help being as struck as Ash was by Dawn’s bold innocence while she showed off her coordinating outfit and later suggested that he enter the Jubilife Contest alongside her. The rest of you could think that this is one of those moments in which Ash and Dawn were at their most natural, namely cooperating with each other, while Dawn was attempting to show Ash an activity that she enjoyed quite a lot. For my part, it’s an episode that doesn’t involve world-ending agendas or forest-burning Pokémon hunters, but rather, features these two kids in an everyday occurrence, at least for them, that likely strengthened their romantic friendship in Sinnoh, in us Pearlshippers’ estimation. I could envision such a scenario for them in real life, which could further inspire some ideas for the following question.:
What special moments can you imagine with Ash and Dawn if Dawn stayed with Ash in Unova?
Assuming a lack of intervention by either Team Plasma or some random photographer, maybe an encounter with a group of Luvdisc or Frillish – or even some passing Phione – would do the trick. Ash and Dawn could happen to pay attention to something that either of them knew existed but didn’t particularly notice until that moment, then express some confusion before shrugging it off before smiling at the other, happy simply to be together wherever they are.
Babylon 5, Codename: Kids Next Door, 24, and now, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I am many things at once, and many people might have different opinions about little, old me. If freedom is my main idea, then harmony, individuality, and modernization are the three attributes I now sense and track. Those three attributes and that idea combined to make the United States of America a great global superpower and Pearlshipping and Wishfulshipping great Pokémon couples, and now, they've combined to make those four shows truly great television programs to me. I will enjoy enthusiastically supporting the Equestrian ponies' adventures for peace, for humankind, for the future.
